Coachella and Stagecoach attendees will no longer need to wear masks or provide a negative test for this year's festivals, according to the updated health and safety rules.

Variety reports that both Coachella and Stagecoach have ditched COVID restrictions for this year's events. Attendees won't need to wear masks, prove their vaccination status or provide a negative test upon entry.

Stagecoach announced the entry policy update via Twitter, writing, "Festival Admission Update: As we prepare to spend an incredible weekend in the desert together we are announcing that there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Stagecoach 2022, in accordance with local guidelines."

Coachella didn't share the admission update on socials, but the festival site has been changed to reflect the new admission policy. One section reads: "However, the event shall be presented in accordance with applicable public health conditions as of the date of the event and which may change at any time as determined by federal, state or local government agencies or instrumentalities, artists or the promoter; such requirements may include, without limitation, changes to capacity, attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings. If any ticket holder does not comply with any laws, mandates, health orders or directives, promoter or event terms, conditions or rules, then the promoter or event operator may refuse admission to the event or require the ticket holder to leave the venue and such ticket holder will not be entitled to a refund."

This year's Coachella will be headlined by Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Ye (Kanye West). It'll take place from 15-17 and 22-24 April. Visit for more information.
